Weekend Getaway

Pin It

Imagine a little weekend getaway cottage.  It seems foreign to me, the woman with two jobs, four dogs and two cats.  Let's face it, the dogs are the real anchor.  Cats can fend for themselves, and jobs can be left behind.

But if I had a little weekend cottage that I could run off to . . . it might look a little like the Saturday Collection from Little Yellow Bicycle.  

I had this little wooden birdhouse, and I painted it white.  And it sat for perhaps a year awaiting the perfect paper.  And then there it was . . . Saturdays.  I cut and pieced, almost like laying one board at a time.

 I was so careful to keep the designs in line and not lose the look of this great paper. 

Cut, trim, align, paste . . . repeat . . . 

One side at a time . . . 

Until it was time to move in.  

The only thing missing is the rocking chair on the porch.
